Our exotic pet: lizard

Smarties have been asking for a pet. I couldn’t afford a real one and so we made a craft one or should I say we crafted one. We made used of very very simple materials to make a very very simple craft pet each: a pet lizard. Yes, very very simple and very very affordable because no feeding is required. 😉

The materials required are just:
– paper
– decorating materials (crayons, colour pencils, stickers, etc)
– scissor
– double sided tape or glue
– ruler

Cut out the paper like the below. Pardon the red paper and the red table because that’s the smarties’ favourite colour.

You will only need to use the centre piece of paper shown above. Decorate it.

Once decoration is done, fold the 2 corners in and cut it. Use another piece of paper to make the head and the legs of the lizard.

Stick all parts together and you’ve got yourself a pet lizard!

It’s not real but at least smarties are happy with their exotic pets they have created. See how simple it is? If they want another pet, we can always make another one.

Interested to know what other pets we have? Do stay tuned to our blog for more 😉
